Baba lays stress on Saanthi, as one of the four pillars of individual and social happiness. He declares that every human being is Santha Swarupa in essence. He is the embodiment of Saanthi and since Baba is the Indweller, Saanthi is our Reality. As the depths of the sea are unaffected by tides and whirlpools, as the depths of space are undisturbed by tornadoes and thunderbolts, our inner core is the realm of Peace, of Santhi. Baba insists that 'Saanthi is not the absence of agitation or unrest. It is the consummation of Sathya and Dharma, of adherence to truth and morality, at all levels!' Baba says that 'Saanthi can be earned only by rigorous control of the senses, which attract and distract and cause movements, forward and backward'. Saanthi is fortitude in fortune and misfortune; it is equanimity, unshaken steadfastness. To watch Him is to receive the most impressive lesson in Saanthi.
Baba addresses the vast numbers who gather to listen to Him as "Embodiments of Saanthi", for He visualizes the inner core of each. He is the Inner core and so, each one of us is of His nature, fundamentally, "Andari lonoo Sayi unnaadu", He asserts. "In every one, Sayi exists". So, for everyone, Saanthi (Sai) is the core.
